Broken stitches causing open wound, bleeding post reduction of labia minora. Will it heal by itself?

Hi I had a reduction of my labia minora done two days ago. Im a bit worried because I think one or maybe two of the stitches has broke open. It in the left side in the front. I can see a little open wound but dont think its bleeding. Im bleeding a bit but not much. Do I have to contact my doctor to get som new stitches or will the wound heal itself? and will it heal nice anyways? Its it normal to still have a little bit of bleeding on the second day? Thank you!

hello sofie
are you sure you are not menstruating, or it could be collected blood coming out now
regarding stitches it is diffy for you to see them
any way a visit to your doc would be the best
it should not bleed on day two.
